Title: Rev Rods... any other options?
Post by: OCPablo on June 27, 2017, 05:26 PM
A thought hit me just now... is there any other option for Rev's besides the Revolution made rods?  Not wanting to switch, just curious really.

I use Sky Shark P90s with a Sky Shark III in the centre LE on this SUL quad:

Yes, SkyShark for sure. You can also mix and match Rev tubes with each other to achieve desired flight characteristics. Some of the carbon tubes that are available differ in length from the Rev tubes, so you will have to cut them, and you will also need to make ferrules as most are not sold as finished frames.

Skyshark III? Do you mean a P300?  What did you use for the sail spars?

Sky Shark, G-Force and Crystal all come to mind.

 Crystal T-0 and Crystal T-2 rods come with the Freileins Kites..

I did get the name wrong, it was an old non-tapered Sky Shark 3 wrap back before they had consistent labels, just had a purple ring painted on it. I believe they were called 3P back then.

Skyburner/skyshark are now selling ready made quad frames for $75.  They are a forum sponsor ->
